Outing to the Contemporary Jewish Museum

Today, January 8, 2012, the Sunday School kids went on an outing to the Contemporary Jewish Museum in downtown San Francisco. We wanted to see the  Houdini: Art and Magic Show, only on display until January 16.

The first art exhibition in an American art museum on this master magician, Houdini: Art and Magic explores how Houdini’s role as an American icon was transformed across three centuries: first in the late 19th century by the artist’s own interpretation of himself; by popular culture in the 20th century; and today by contemporary artists who conjure Houdini as an audacious performer and showman of raw physicality.

The kids (and parents) had a great time and will surely return soon for another great exhibit.
